Just received in an email:
"Today the Prime Minister announced that he has instructed the Home Office to address the inequality on marriage certificates and allow mothers' name to appear alongside fathers."

So are we all supposed to vote for him at the election next year?

No, just the genealogists....

You forget, he does not want to do a census in 2021 as the last one was too expensive. Not quite sure if it's been cancelled yet or not.

I heard at our last meeting last Thurs that it isn't cancelled.
